Only one instance of Dubin-Johnson syndrome associated with cholelithiasis has been reported. We present one additional patient, a 30 year old man with Dubin-Johnson syndrome in whom pancreatitis and cholecystitis, secondary to cholesterol gallstones, developed. A possible cause for the lithogenicity of the bile in the Dubin-Johnson syndrome is considered.

Elevated serum level of bilirubin is a common manifestation which is occurred in several diseases. Hyperbilirubinemia can manifest either conjugated or unconjugated. Conjugated or direct hyperbilirubinemia usually are caused by hepatocellular diseases or cholestatic liver diseases. Merely conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is the main manifestation of two congenital syndromes, including Dubin-Johnson and ...

Hyperbilirubinemia has been presumed to prevent the process of atherogenesis and cancerogenesis mainly by decreasing oxidative stress. Dubin-Johnson syndrome is a rare, autosomal recessive, inherited disorder characterized by biphasic, predominantly conjugated hyperbilirubinemia with no progression to end-stage liver disease. The molecular basis in Dubin-Johnson syndrome is absence or deficiency of ...
